Cold Silence and Solitude – Hiking in the Sarek National Park

14th August 2017

  In the summer of 1967, a guy halts his steps in a field in Wiltshire, retraces his steps the way he came for a few yards – then turns back. He repeats this toing and froing for a while. At some point, he steps aside and photographs the line which has become visible in […]

18th June 2017

  Last year I was very kindly offered from Rhodri @ Nordic life to test out some Brynje Of Norway baselayers and I still remember our phone conversation that I am now slightly embarrassed about: Rhodri – “These things are going to change the way you have ever looked at and used base layers” Jamie […]

The Glass Half Full

Written by Filip Kamycki  By the time of the training weekend I was already well into my research into the things I might need and what to expect. Armed with the biggest fattest and reddest down jacket I could find I felt ready for the adventure. Or so I thought. Following the training I have […]

   ‘The climb up Aconcagua has been one of the biggest highlights and achievements of my life, really proud of what we all achieved. For me it’s opened doors to what else we can challenge ourselves to if we simply commit to something.’ (Craig) Mountain air is cold and bone-dry and we need our big […]

Mountain Madness

8th May 2017

Mad – that’s the typical adjective most people choose when I tell them about my new expedition. They will listen for a while but are primarily eager to get in a second-hand anecdote of a climber who died or a story they heard of a recent polar bear attack.

Shackleton’s journey to Penrith

11th November 2016

  Whilst I creep at 40 mph over the Shap road which is, for the first time this winter, covered in slushy snow, Shackleton and the Endurance are trapped in the pack ice in the Weddell Sea in the long nights of the Antarctic winter.   On my previous commutes, he had still been in […]
